Let’s Define Wellbeing:
As humans, we’re driven by this singular goal, “I just want to be happy!”
So, let’s see how our happiness is determined by how we feel about ourselves on a daily basis. How satisfied are we about the state of our life? Do we experience a sense of pleasant emotions daily? How’s our ability to not get overwhelmed by the nature of our environment – mostly that is out of our control?
So how can we preserve a keen sense of wellbeing on a daily basis? First, to take a stock of our personal wellbeing, we can start by asking ourselves how we feel in three aspects of our life.
a. Our sense of autonomy and purpose
b. Our understanding of our strengths
c. Our connectedness to others
Sifting Through Time:
Finding our most joyful self means we must reconcile with our past, be present in our future and be less anxious of our future. After all, its not in our control.
1. PAST: We must change the narrative
2. PRESENT: We must work on mindset management
3. FUTURE: Start working on increasing our emotional intelligence
